Women are Not a Number, Designer Teresa Lindsay

Fashion Designer Teresa Lindsay made it her mission to demonstrate to women that the outer facade and image standards of society have no power over their inner beauty. Working to enhance self-esteem by discussing relevant fashion conversation on important subjects, history, proper fitting fashions and global production issues she gives an insider perspective. Lindsay makes the matter of “Clothes Fitting the Woman” a focus in her sizeless line of couture, made-to-measure fashion options and a collection of pants made to fit the woman.

She encourages women to be less concerned about their size and height and to become concerned about their contribution to the world by feeling great in what they wear. ” Comfort and feeling together” is so much better than misfitting clothing and clothing that cannot keep up with you doing whatever you do!”

Women Who Own It

“Women who OWN IT” is designed to celebrate women who OWN what they do and inspire others through their drive, passion, human connection, stellar talent and powerhouse grace to get done whatever it is they love!

What do you OWN totally? What passion, hobby, career, talent or work in the world makes you feel whole?

What inspires us is unique. Each of  the women we featured is incredible in their own way – each is doing what they love and they OWN IT!  They have overcome obstacles or gone beyond and Teresa would like to pay tribute to them, creating a special day to transform them for a few hours. Dressed in the Tribute Trouser collection they try on all the various pant designs, have their make up done by our clean cosmetic partners Elate Cosmetics, time to dance in their favourite pants for a photo shoot and wrap up the day telling their own story on how fashion impacted their self-confidence. Watch for their motivating stories every month!

Slow Fashion? Isn’t Slow

You may have heard this term “slow fashion.” What is behind a label that takes this process to heart? Do you understand what it means. Is it slow? The term originated by Kate Fletcher of Centre for Sustainable Fashion, UK, in 2007, and is more than a movement – it takes a very serious look at the use of fashion and the clothing we wear everyday as an important “whole” process. It’s one step above the thought “if you want something to wear make it yourself.” Which, is exactly what the poor, middle to lower upper class used to do (right up until the 20’s) verses the upper class who had an in house dressmaker.
Trends of clothing and the latest runway show broadcast through the heightened media continuously set off a storm of desire for certain new seasonal look. Then mass production has had to meet this overwhelming global demand for a garment (primarily set by large retailers to entice shoppers to constantly keep up with the Jones’). However, quality and labour standards dropped significantly as “fast fashion” became a way for more affordable to the western world so shoppers found something cheap, but this was happening at a price and made only a few men very wealthy. “No matter the cost” became a world wide issue with destructive methods to our environment and poverty in production amassed.
Slow fashion is actually an term to explain that clothing takes time, that there is a cost to each step and the actual time in producing a garment fairly without setting the system off balance. Slow fashion, is often made local, or in your country, or made in a safe and fair wage facility offshore, and made with fabrics of quality, reducing the likelihood of continuing the negative, waste-not-want-not trend of “disposable fashion.”

How long do you think it takes to buy the fabric, cut and sew a single pair of pants?
